In this online community, UCF alumni and friends can connect and enjoy books through online discussions, virtual gatherings, and events. There is no cost to participate – you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy.
The UCF Alumni Book Club is looking to spread the literary love! Are you interested in hosting a book club discussion?
Stay up to date with new book announcements, events, and alumni author news by signing up for the book club monthly newsletter!
Many of our Knight authors have produced significant works across all literary genres.
The book club will read one book every two months. If you have a little time every week to read, you should be fine. After one month, we will start sharing one discussion question a week on the Facebook page for members to participate. There are no strict expectations on members for this virtual community; if you can’t read one of the books then it’s OK. If you can only read part of a book and contribute a little to the online discussion then that’s OK too.
The book club will be online so people can participate anywhere in the world. We will be offering optional virtual meetups near the end of the two-month period that will be held at 7PM EST, on various days of the week. If there is not enough interest, we will not host a virtual meetup that month.
No. Participation is completely free for UCF alumni! You are responsible for getting a copy of the book to read or listen to, but your local library should have most books for free.
Members can purchase the book or borrow the book from local libraries.
The book club will have a moderator who manages the Facebook group where discussions occur online. The moderator will pose questions to the group, share relevant articles and encourage conversation about topics in the book. Members will be able to post and share as well. This format allows for ongoing conversation and makes it easy for alumni to connect with each other through Facebook.
Don’t have a Facebook profile? You can make one for free at facebook.com. Just sign up and follow the easy instructions to make your profile. If you don’t want to create a Facebook profile, dates for future book club virtual meetups will be posted on the UCF Alumni Events Calendar.
